I hope we will get some on the list.
In the meantime, let me give you my personal opinion.

1) The contract with NSI will be extended for 6 months (until 30.

2) The GP will hibernate (Ira will take some time to review the comments,
will make generic statements like: "Very interesting suggestions from
everybody", and so on, but no outcome in the short term).

3) The reorganization of IANA will go on. The new IANA will try to follow
most of the indications of the Green Paper, and has to fight for keeping the
authority on the Root Servers (possibly, this time, with direct control of
the A-Root).

I believe that the success of IANA in doing this is the necessary condition
for progressing with the gTLD-MoU. In other words, the next battle is the
recognition of IANA: if this doesn't happen, our chances to be successful
are very low.
